Well now, it seems that some of the “talents” in the adult entertainment industry are actually paying their way through school. Heather Swift, a former porn star and stripper who went by the name Holly Price has passed the California bar exam this past summer.
Swift is a 2013 graduate of Western State University College of Law, had the following to say to law blog, Above The Law:
I took the July 2014 California Bar Exam (my first time taking any bar exam), and I PASSED. No, I did not get time and a half, nor do I have any inside connections to the California State Bar. …
How did I do it? Because unbeknownst to many, women in the adult industry are intelligent and can matriculate through a cutthroat tier 3 law school, and pass the hardest bar exam in history. Unlike Miriam Weeks, I actually did graduate through law school, and I actually did pass the most difficult bar exam on my first attempt.
Perhaps society needs to relinquish stereotypes and overcome their jealousy.
She’s already been earning a paycheck screwing people before she passed the bar exam, so she should make a damn fine lawyer.
